    5.0 - Excellent

    A fantastic cycling holiday in the hidden Costa Brava, hardly any traffic or other people, with superb hotels and delicious meals.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Despite not cycling much in the UK, we managed the distances easily, although I was sometimes defeated by the hills - the countryside is NOT 'pancake flat' as described on the website and my legs protested. However, it was a great feeling not to have to dismount all the time! What did you think of your group leader?Alan's route notes were very detailed so no chance of getting lost (although if you need reading glasses you will be stopping frequently to check them).  On the rest days, there were several route suggestions. He also very kindly came to pick us up earlier than scheduled, thus avoiding a wait of several hours at Flaca station.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Be prepared for some hills! Despite the breeze, we were sweaty and red-faced when we arrived at the hotels (all of which were up a hill) but a quick shower and a swim restored us. You may wish to take gel saddles!Is there anything else you would like to add?The route notes would be easier to read while cycling if they went across the page, instead of in two columns, and if they were in a larger font than 10 pt.

    Very good holiday with excellent cycling routes, good quality bikes and some unique hotels.  We did not realise that the Costa Brava had so many medieval villages relatively close to the coast.  What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Being able to cycle up all the hills without getting off was for me inspirational.  The views from the outdoor dining area at the hotel Castella d'Emporda  were wonderful, as well as the garden area.Pals was a lovely medieval town and we wish we had spent more time there rather than pedalling off to the next place on the itineraryWhat did you think of your group leader?Alan was very efficient and keen to make sure the route directions were up to date and everything running smoothly.  His directions of how to get to and from Flaca station were invaluable. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?We flew into and out of Barcelona airport and on paper the onward train journey looked slightly complex.  However, if you follow Alan's instructions in the trip notes they are spot on and the journey is relatively easy.  Oddly enough, BA from Heathrow to Barcelona was cheaper than Ryanair to Girona at the time we booked but Girona is much nearer to Flaca where you can be picked up by Alan.. The price of drinks at hotel Castell d'Emporda and hotel Sa Punta seemed very high and were not itemised on the bill at check out. To avoid surprises at check out time you may want to do what some guests did and check the price at the time of ordering the drink.Is there anything else you would like to add?It was our first cycling holiday and we did not know what daily mileage and terrain would suit us best.  We cycle at weekends but nothing more seriously than that and this holiday suited us very well.  The hotels provided very good facilities at the end of a day's cycling- you could relax and eat well.
